Mccartney To Release Book About Linda
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY is set to release a coffee table book in honour of his beloved first wife LINDA.
The former Beatle is alleged to have met with London publishers about the project earlier this week (begs21Apr08).
According to reports, MCCartney will "share lots of intimate moments" of his life with the photographer, singer and animal rights activist in the tome, which will be released to mark the 10th anniversary of her death. Linda died in 1998 after losing her battle with breast cancer.
And a close pal of the singer believes the experience will be therapeutic for MCCartney, having finally settled his bitter $48.6 million (GBP24.3 million) divorce from second wife Heather Mills last month (Mar08).
A close pal of the singer says, "Times have been hard for him recently with the divorce from Heather. He's delighted he can focus his mind on something else. He sees this as a special tribute to Linda's memory."
News of the planned book follows the recent opening of an exhibition of Linda's photos at the James Hyman Gallery in London. The display is the first major show of her work in her adopted Britain.
